Teach Children English in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a beautiful country and crying out for native English speakers to help teach as volunteers - this is a great way to teach English without having to be TEFL qualified

The education system in Sri Lanka faces several major challenges; 

  • poor quality
  • mismatch of curriculum with existing labour market demands
  • lack of training for school teachers 
  • inefficient administration
  • limited government funding for education, b
  • lack of clear national/state educational policy
  • un-planned policy changes by the political leaders from regime to regime
  • politicisation of recruiting procedures of school teachers
  • lack of proper teacher training

and all this has led to lack of quality education.

The biggest problem in terms of education is the lack of English amongst the marginally poor. English is extremely important given that Sri Lanka is emerging as a popular destination for tourism. 

Volunteers on the English teaching program will be working in local primary schools and kindergartens assisting both teachers and students alike.
